Too often we are afraid to fully commit, whether it is committing in a relationship, partnership, education, work or new adventure in life, the fear derives from not trusting our inner core abilities, as we have doubts that were created long before we can ever comprehend.
Reaching out to release ourselves from these fear-ignited old burdens, grief, and pains that are being, and have been expressed in our actions, thoughts and feelings, is essential.
I invited people to contemplate on this question, on my Facebook group Xsist, last week. I invited people to step out of their busy schedule for a moment, and give themselves the time to feel deep within, if they were truthful enough to themselves.
Often, we think we are truthful to ourselves. We know when we tell a lie, or pretend to know, or pretend to be someone we are not to others, yet we still think we are truthful to ourselves when we do so. Are you? Are you truthful to yourself, when you lie to others? Can you justify your lie? Why do you think you can? What does that say about you? Is that truthful to yourself?
Not being truthful to ourselves, often happens because we don’t fully trust ourselves.
When we cover up the truth, we find justification for the situation we were confronted with. To not feel the pain that the truth can create or created; we close off, walk away, try to forget, or find excuses for it, as it would require effort from us that we rather not touch.
What would be more beneficial for the long term, would be asking yourself why the truth hurts, and if you know why, what can you do to find peace with that. If you do not want to go through the self-analysis, or if you do not know the answer – for many reasons we truly may not know – we can reach to the core of our heart and within love, release the old burdens that do not serve us any longer.
It is essential to fully trust in ourselves again, because once we trust, we will allow ourselves to explore, grow and soar above the self-created boundaries, as it will give us the inner freedom we have longed for.
Trusting yourself, means you know that when you fall, you will pick yourself up again. Trusting yourself means you will not give up and keep moving forward, reaching out to your best abilities in the moment.
We need to come to a point when we don’t seek for courage, or strength, or safety within others; as we have accepted our whole self, and have allowed ourselves to fully be present again.
Let me ask you again; Are you truthful enough, to allow yourself to be truthful?
